Elephants Can Remember made me sad...because I solved it. You see, the reason I hold Dame Agatha Christie in such high regard is that she always outsmarts me, and I dont mind in the least--I love her for her twisted mind. -) No other author can do it- fond as I am of Christies Golden Age contemporaries--Dorothy Sayers, Patricia Wentworth, Josephine Tey, Ngaio Marsh, et.

al.--they never baffle me unless they havent played fair and given me enough to go on. But Agatha...I rarely figure her out until the end. This one, though, seemed transparent to me, and thats a shame. I dont believe for one moment that Christie declined with age--she wrote excellent novels throughout her 56-year career, and a few of my favorites were late in her life.

I just think, for whatever reason, this wasnt one of her best.Christie has many excellent cold case novels- they were one of her specialties--Murder in Retrospect, Dumb Witness, Nemesis, Sleeping Murder, and many others. Perhaps she did finally run out of variations on this specific theme. Perhaps it should have been a Miss Marple case instead of a Poirot, since Miss Marple does such a wonderful job of playing the gossipy old lady in situations like this. I dont know. I just know that for once the obvious twist was the correct one, and Id rather never speak of that again!
